How will I know if my tree should go?

One of our arborists can help decide whether or not a tree should be removed. They have the skills and equipment to safely and efficiently remove trees. Removal is recommended when:

  • The tree is causing an obstruction that is impossible to correct through trimming and pruning.
  • The tree is crowding and causing harm to other trees.
  • The tree is to be replaced by a more suitable specimen.
  • The tree should be removed to allow for new construction.

Will insurance pay for tree removal?

The answer to that question depends on your insurance provider. Generally speaking, insurance plans DON’T cover the cost to remove a tree until it has fallen, and usually only the portion on your property. As to whether they will pay to have it removed depends on why the tree fell in the first place. For example, if the tree fell during a storm or act of nature versus neglect by not maintaining it.

Do you offer emergency tree removal?

We provide emergency tree services for a variety of circumstance. Storms may cause limbs or entire trees to fail, often landing on homes, cars, other structures or other trees. In some cases the danger can be seen in week limbs where tree trimming service is all that is necessary.
